And for that reason, Tiger Woods was the top sports story of 2010 according to the Associated Press.
2010 wasn’t much better for Woods than 2009 after he divorced his wife Elin and failed to win a PGA Tour event for the first time in his professional career.
Noticeably missing off AP’s list was the Reggie Bush/Heisman saga, the Cam Newton investigation, and the University of Connecticut women’s basketball winning streak.
Below is the entire Top 10:
1. Tiger’s lost year
2. LeBron’s free-agency
3. Saints’ Super Bowl win
4. Giants’ World Series win
5. Lakers’ repeat as champs
6. NFL concussion awareness
7. Canada Olympic gold hockey win
8. Spain’s World Cup victory
9. Jimmie Johnson’s drive for five
